The World Champion Robotic Soccer Team of Near East University visits Narin Ferdi Şefik, President of the Supreme Court of TRNC

Along with Near East University Board of Trustees Chairman Assoc. Prof. Dr. İrfan S. Günsel, the team in charge of NEUIslanders, the robotic soccer team of Near East University, which became the champion in RoboCup 2018 (Robotic Soccer World Cup) that held in Montreal in Canada, paid a visit to TRNC Supreme Court President Narin Ferdi Şefik.

During the visit, Near East University Board of Trustees Chairman Associate Professor İrfan Günsel and the accompanying team provided the Supreme Court President Narin Ferdi Şefik with information regarding the path leading to success of the robotic soccer team by underlining that 100% of the mechanical and electronic design and the artificial intelligence coding of the robots had been created by Near East University.

During the visit, it was also underlined that Near East University’s 2050 mission was to field a robotic soccer team for a friendly game against FIBA Human World Cup Champion. They also delivered information about NEU’s progressive mission regarding producing human tissues and organs via the bioprinter that produced by Near East University.

Narin Ferdi Şefik; “It is highly appreciative that Near East University has advanced this much…”
“A very different world. I am sure that certain countries have covered even more distance on this route but it is highly appreciative that Near East University from TRNC has advanced this much on this route. More power to you, enjoy your success. I wish you continued success in your work. Indeed, it’s really a matter of pride for our country”

Assoc. Prof. Dr. İrfan S. Günsel: “By Producing Tissues and Organs via Bioprinter, We will continue to be a model for 3rd Generation Universities…”
In his remarks, Near East University Board of Trustees Chairman Associate Professor İrfan Günsel expressed their pride of becoming the champ of RoboCup 2018 that held in Montreal, Canada.

Highlighting that the world championship of the robotic soccer team of Near East University was one of the best examples of actualizing Near East University’s vision of taking place amongst the third generation universities, Near East University Board of Trustees Chairman Associate Professor İrfan Günsel stated that their goal was to make the name of Turkish Cypriots known in the world’s health sector by producing human tissues and organs via bioprinter. “3D Bioprinting of human tissues and organs will revolutionize the field of tissue engineering and thus, the future of medicine. We believe we can create this future through our innovative studies” said he.

Assoc. Prof. Dr. İrfan S. Günsel: “We target the Bioprinting of Tissues and Organs Like Skin, Cartilage and Bone by using the Bioprinter that we developed…”
Underlining that works on bioprinting tissue and organs were ongoing at Near East University R&D laboratories, Associate Professor Günsel delivered information about the bioprinting procedure: “Our R&D team have designed and created the Bioprinter in our 3D laboratory. The constructed bioprinting operating system allows the user to orchestrate the intricate process of building human tissues and organs. Cell-ink makes it possible to 3D print human tissues and organs. Bioprinting will have a profound effect on the future of medicine. In virtue of the Bioprinter, we will produce live cells in micron precision with the help of a syringe. It continues as the co-study of NEU 3D laboratory and Near East University Hospital. Bioprinting tests with cell-ink are currently ongoing in our laboratory and we are very satisfied with the results acquired so far. Towards the end of this year, we will have realized bioprinting tissue. Bioprinting tissue and organs like skin, cartilage and bone is among our goals.

The Robotic Soccer Championship that we won this year is a clear indicator that Near East University can compete with the world giants in the field of technology. This propels our enthusiasm for sustaining our innovative works in this field and it also demonstrates once again what Turkish Cypriots are capable to achieve when provided with opportunity. Near East University is the leading-gear of our country in innovation. We are moving towards creating the future with great breakthroughs. Our next step is to fabricate human tissue and organs via the Bioprinter created in our labs and make a profound effect in the field of medicine” noted he.
